The beauty of nature and the excellence of manmade marvels are mixed together in most wonderful proportions to create a symphony of exquisite loveliness that, to not see it, when in the city of London, will be a reason for reproach indeed! Regent’s Park, one of the Royal Parks of England is a thing of beauty most certainly and is one of the city’s most prominent attractions.
Lying in inner North West London, Regent’s Park has a land extent of 410 acres and is complete with a lake with a heronry, gardens, waterfowl and boating area, children’s playgrounds as well as sporting grounds. Apart from that, the London Zoo that lies on the northern end of the park along with the headquarters of the Zoological Society of London heightens the location’s prominence in this great city. The Winfield House which is located here in the western section is the official residence of the US Ambassador to the United Kingdom.
The site is without a doubt a haven of pleasure and delight to the sport lover as many forms of sports are facilitated here including football, athletics, tennis, netball, cricket, hockey, rounders, australian rules football, ultimate Frisbee, running as well as rugby. Sports fanatics find these luxuries in the area called Northern Parkland which was opened in 2005 by Queen Elizabeth II. Cyclists also roam Regent’s Park in their numbers in the outer circle, discovering delights at every turn.
Architecturally too the park holds great significance in the terraces such as Gloucester Gate, Cumberland Terrace, York Terrace, Chester Terrace, Cambridge Terrace, Clarence Terrace, Cornwall Terrace, Sussex Place, Hanover Terrace as well as the Kent Terrace, lending much colour and charm to the perfect picture of British glory.
When in the city, consider staying at a London luxury hotel such as Metropolitan by COMO London which will certainly add the element of luxury and opulence to your holiday. Moreover such hotels also provide ease of access to some of the city’s most celebrated tourist attractions such as Regent’s Park and thus provide convenience and ease to make your holiday even better.
